Emergence: Labeled Autistic
Author(s): Temple Grandin
Now with a new introduction, Temple Grandin’s groundbreaking book chronicles the remarkable and inspiring true story of how she overcame the challenges of autism. Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or control her behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually moved from a “normal” school to an educational program for children with autism, she began to suffer “nerve attacks.” Now Temple tells the story of how she went from a fear-gripped, child with autism to a successful professional and a world leader in her field. A chronicle of perseverance and courage, EMERGENCE gives new hope and insight into autism and the vast potential of the human spirit.
